Loddon Valley Link


jane4Welcome to the July edition of the Loddon Valley Link.

These days we are all urged to create gardens which will boost the declining bee population (I'm pleased to say our garden has lots!) so I thought it was particularly appropriate to put the lovely picture of a bee on the front cover. Many thanks to Janice Berry. Environmental issues are a particular focus this month, with some thoughts from our minster Stephen on the need to adopt a balanced approach. Our MP Ranil Jayawardena also talks about the problem, telling us about local and national initiatives as well as inviting comments and views from constituents. jul19 contents
With changes of personnel currently happening at Loddon Valley Link our retiring chairman Donald Dawson reflects on the development of the magazine in the last twenty years. We have certainly come a long way since the days of production on a Gestetner printer! I would like to add my heartfelt thanks to Donald for his tireless work on the Link over the past twenty-one years. He has developed and improved it and has managed every aspect including content, production, finances and distribution, thus keeping the ship on an even course. I am glad to say he continues to be a member of the committee; his experience and expertise will be invaluable to me.
We are once again running our Loddon Valley Link cover photo competition at the Sherfield Show, so get snapping on your mobile and other devices! See p. 27 for details.
Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council has announced changes to bin collections from 22 July. Over half of all borough residents will have their rubbish collected on a different day. Full details will be delivered to individual households from 1 July but B&DBC has supplied some information in the meantime.
